Sides by Peter Straub

Over twenty years in the making, Sides represents the first ever collection of non-fiction by bestselling author Peter Straub. Featuring introductions, essays, afterwords, and even a "frivolity"—along with the collected works of Putney Tyson Ridge, Straub's "self-invented human speed bump and alter ego"—this collection presents a rare glimpse into the author's tastes and personal musings on a wide gauntlet of topics ranging from The Stepford Wives and Dracula to Lawrence Block and Stephen King.

Also included is "The Fantasy of Everyday Life", Straub's Guest-of-Honor speech at the 1998 International Conference of the Fantastic in the Arts, and "Mom", an essay that appeared in a book that combined short stories written by mother-son partnerships with essays written by male writers about their mothers.

The "frivolity" here, "Why Electricman Lives in New York", was written for an anthology celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of New York is Book Country.

This long awaited collection closes with Putney Tyson Ridge's reviews and commentaries on virtually every Peter Straub novel published since the 1970s.

About the Author:

Peter Straub is the author of seventeen novels, which have been translated into more than twenty languages. They include Ghost Story, Koko, Mr. X, In the Night Room, and two collaborations with Stephen King, The Talisman and Black House. He has written two volumes of poetry and two collections of short fiction, and he edited the Library of America's edition of H. P. Lovecraft's Tales. He has won the British Fantasy Award, seven Bram Stoker Awards, two International Horror Guild Awards, and two World Fantasy Awards. In 1998, he was named Grand Master at the World Horror Convention. In 2006, he was given the HWA’s Life Achievement Award.
